There has been some significant interest from local organisations that want to be a part of the event and race day experience. Running as a team can be extremely fun, and brings about some healthy competition between local businesses. It can also create a buzz between the workforce and contribute to staff morale in the lead up to the big day.”

The crowned Corporate Champions will be decided based upon the five fastest team members. The average time will be calculated between the first five runners to reach the finish line for each business.
